Taverley village
Taverley is home to the druids of Gielinor

These worshippers of Guthix are close to nature and will not willingly do anything to disrupt the natural order. They are all gifted herbalists, skilled in the preparation of many oils, unguents and potions mixed from a range of special herbs and weeds.

Taverley itself is composed of buildings in odd shapes, more reminiscent of tents than houses.

The town also boasts a mightily impressive stone circle, where the druids gather to worship Guthix.


Location of Taverley
Taverley's location

Taverley lies in Asgarnia's north-west, pinned between Falador to the southeast and Burthorpe to the north.

West across White Wolf Mountain is the town of Catherby, where many adventurers pause to work on their Fishing.

Just south of the town, its entrance hidden in a forest of dead trees, is the ominous and deadly Taverley Dungeon.
